expect, it is a good life. sometimes the press can get first pets down. remember when george bush's dog let this reporter know just what he thought of that question. but one thing is constant. every u.s. president has had at least one pet. because when a person is a friend, he knows who he can count on. the first president practically had a zoo, yes, george washington was the proud owner of many stallions, even a parrot, in addition to several dogs. welcome, sunny, may you spread some cheer. we can hope. thank you for watching "nightline," as always, we're on line at abcnews.com. for all of us here at abc news, good night, america.
